Re: Books vs. Movies

I guess I don't usually make the choice of which first. I may have read the book, before there was a movie, and I may go see the movie. Or, I might see a movie, and be interested to read the book. But, with few exceptions, the book is better than the movie. So, I would say that the ideal is to read the book, then wait a while, so it's not so fresh in your mind, then go see the movie.
